About Featherbed Nature Reserve

Only accessible by ferry, Featherbed Nature Reserve is a privately-owned unspoiled headland at the Western Head of the Knysna Lagoon.

Visitors young and old will thoroughly enjoy embarking on a spectacular four-hour eco-experience to this exquisite little corner of the Garden Route. This outdoor experience includes a return ferry trip, nature drive, guided walk and a lavish buffet lunch at the Food Forest Restaurant.

Access to the reserve is strictly controlled and visits are only permitted in the company of the Featherbed Nature Reserve's specialist guides.

Starting with a 25-minute ferry cruise, your local guide will share intriguing tales about the Knysna Lagoon, early shipping industry and Knysna’s oyster cultivation.

The cruise is followed by a 4x4 drive to the top of the Western Head where supreme views of the lagoon, mountains and Knysna can be seen. After the drive, you have the option of walking a 2.2 kilometre downhill guided nature trail.

This fun family outing ends with with a blowout buffet lunch at the popular Knysna restaurant under the milkwood trees.

The four-hour excursion departs daily from Knysna Waterfront. Bookings are essential.

What an experience. First the cruise to the Nature Reserve with lots of interesting information regarding the town. Then.. the drive up-hill with spectacular views, followed by the pleasant hike down-hill and more views of the area. And last but not least the best buffet lunch ever! An unforgettable adventure!Andre and Maretha
